|Canadian Association of Radiologists
|Summer 2018: – Allison was contacted by a Radiology association – asking for a meeting. She met with them in November – CAR – have put together a set of guidelines. Reaching out to organization to participate – They will choose top 10 – then send to us –– they would like to have NPAC for our approval – that would make the best recommendations re tests that should be done for quality care and cost-effectiveness.
Lindsey stated he could help – goes hand in hand with Choosing Wisely. They were looking for NPAC stamp of approval – Less collaboration in drawing up the guidelines – but more as a Stamp of approval. Sounds like a very positive collaboration. Alison was put in contact with MD lead: she is waiting to hear from this lead.
|Allison to forward on to NPAC- BOD when she receives the CAR guidelines
